If you’ve vowed that you’d be willing to pay up for not having to sit around waiting for the cable guy to appear, then Time Warner Cable may have a deal for you, reports Bloomberg News.
Time Warner Cable is testing a new premium package with a $189.95 price tag that sets a specific service appointment time for customers, according to Chief Executive Glenn Britt. The package, called "Signature Home", is being tested in Charlotte, North Carolina and will be rolled out country-wide in a few weeks, the story says.
The premium package comes with a few more bells and whistles, though: the deal includes access to a "personal service adviser" 24 hours a day, and DVRs with a terabyte of storage that are able to record four high-definition programs at the same time. It also includes wireless service that can connect as many as 13 devices, from TVs to computers, it adds.
